By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Listen as she talks about the learning that she and her students encountered as a result, including the beautiful and poignant poetry that they produced in response. Supported by Viamonde District Consultant, Andrienne Lefebvre, this is a powerful story of learning about Canada’s history of residential schools
